Just speaking from almost 4 years of experience on #bookstagram (dedicated bookish accounts and posts on the social app, Instagram) readers are starting to collect books for their Fall/Winter TBR. This is often the season where people dabble in the horror genre so I'm going to start rounding up each month's horror releases in an attempt to help people make some good, horror choices.
First up are two of my recommendations:
THE FEARING- John F. D. Taff
Book One: Fire & Rain is already out and you can read that now! Buy it!
Book Two: Water & Wind is ready for preorder with a release date of Aug. 20th
Sing Your Sadness Deep-
British Fantasy Award-winning author, and Shirley Jackson Award finalist Laura Mauro, a leading voice in contemporary dark fiction, delivers a remarkable debut collection of startling short fiction. Human and humane tales of beauty, strangeness, and transformation told in prose as precise and sparing as a surgeon’s knife. A major new talent!

A Killing Fire- Faye Snowden
Flame Tree Press
As a child forced to witness her father’s crimes, homicide detective Raven Burns dedicates every waking moment to prove that she is not her father’s child.

Hellfire- JG Faherty

its wake. Only Eddie’s younger brother, Carson, and the police chief’s daughter, Ellie, know how to stop him.
River of Souls- T. L. Bodine
A gripping thriller that can’t be set down, River of Souls takes you to the dark and twisted places of life and of death, while finding normalcy among the undead and the trials of life and family that wind through it all.
